Connell, P.J., Join The Crowd

Join The Crowd is the newest collection of rollicking and gritty songs from P. J. O'Connell, whom All Music Guide dubs β€œan American power pop auteur on a journey that keeps getting more and more beautiful with each release.” The much anticipated Join The Crowd finds former Flying Pigs leader O'Connell reunited with the brains and brawn of NRBQ – pianist Terry Adams and drummer Tom Ardolino – together with guitarists Mike Gent (The Figgs), Joey Interlande and bassist Marc Hickox. The record also features appearances from Chandler Travis, The Mayock Brothers, Dinty Child and Stan Martin. On this powerful fourth solo release, O'Connell, whose sound is often compared to that of Paul Westerberg and Jeff Tweedy, delivers eleven cinematic originals covering a wide range of hard themes for these difficult times. Join The Crowd carries on the tradition of high caliber, intelligent songwriting from an American original.
